Episode 21: Lost In The Sauce

“Muslims don’t drink” — how many times have you heard that before? In the first of a series of episodes about intoxicants, Ahmed invites Barnard Professor of Religion, Najam Haider, to provide some context about the role of alcohol in Islam. They talk about intoxicated Sufi mystics, coffee addiction, and why tiramisu can tear a relationship apart. And be sure to stay tuned for more episodes on American Muslims' relationship to alcohol and weed!
